    I told my mom about bringing my boyfriend to meet her(she lives in Cuba). The thing is I wasnt very sure cause I didnt want to create a situation for her, she is totally fine with me having a bf but other family members, friends and neighbors can be just annoying sometimes when it comes to this topic. Anyway she said she doesnt care about whatever anyone has to say and her house is my house and that my happiness is all that matters to her. That definitely made my day. Today however my best friend in Cuba surprised me with an email saying that she is waiting for me to go visit and she wants to meet my bf and that Im stupid for thinking that I might be rejected by my friends and stuff like that, she says that everybody is looking forward to see me again and I better go to Cuba this summer for a couple of weeks.

    Here in Canada(been here for 3 years) everybody(my dad lives here) knows Im gay but in Cuba only my mom did, and now apparently everybody knows and nobody gives a shit. Im feeling happier today icon_biggrin.gif

    Oh my dear dear Charlito! Cubans in the island have come along way towards being more accepting of gays, although there still those who dangerously homophobic, so be very careful when you go and visit there. The gay community in Cuba is very discreet but huge by the way!!

    I am very glad that your mother and best friend in Cuba embraced you and don't care what the nosy neighbors might think. I hope you seriously consider going to Cuba this summer, although this time of year the weather is just perfect!

    What's the social status (so to speak ) of homosexuals in Cuba?

    there used to a lot of repression towards homosexuals back in the 80s or so Ive heard. Right now I think the country is moving towards equality in terms of sexual orientation. The church has very little power in Cuba and they're banned from all educational institutions, being that said everyone in Cuba is taught that homosexuality is not a disease let alone a choice. The government(which owns everything) gave the ok to the most popular night clubs in Havana to host a gay night once a week. A lot of Cuban TV shows positively showcase the LGBT community but still extremely stereotyped.

    I'd like to go with the b&c to Cuba sometime, but he couldn't go safely until it would be ok for Americans to travel there.
